Immoral Tales

Acclaimed by arthouse erotica fans for his unique surrealist vision, the controversial director Walerian Borowczyk ('The Beast') explores the many facets of eroticism over the centuries in four sublimely sexy stories. 'La Maree' ('The Tide'): A 20-year-old student finds his beautiful cousin ripe and corruptible and the beach the perfect venue for his seduction. 'Therese Philosophe': A teenage girl intermingles in her imagination her dedication to Christ with her urge for sexual fulfilment. 'Erzsebet Bathory': In the Middle Ages, the notorious Countess Bathory - the original 'Countess Dracula' - murders young girls in order to gain eternal youth by bathing in their blood. 'Lucrezia Borgia': Lucrezia Borgia, daughter of the Pope, engages in ecclesiastical debauchery and incestuous sex.
